Thank You for taking an interest in Standing for The Cure and I hope you join me May 2nd in Newport Beach!!
This is my second year fundraising for Susan G Komen and Stand Up for The Cure; together we raised $150 to help women diagnosed and recovering from breast cancer.
My aunt unfortunately passed from a non-operable cancer and lived with my family in our house for the last few months of her life. To see her suffer and struggle, not to mention the toll it took on my mom and family, well I thought " If I can do ANY one thing to help end this ongoing fight with cancer, well I'm going to do it!"
That was my original reason for joining and participating in Stand Up for The Cure. Recently, my mother was operated and had her womb removed... The doctors found Cancer in the mass they had thankfully already removed, but it reminded me of how cancer is still an everyday occurrence. It is ongoing and affecting families all over. I'm beyond thankful that my mother didn't have to deal with any worry or hurt from her cancer find and I hope my fundraising can help other woman get diagnosed and cured promptly, before this deadly disease steals another life from our world.
